Konami officially announced Lords of Shadow is now Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and Metal Gear Solid director Hideo Kojima is assisting its development. Madrid based Mercury Steam is still working on the project. A new console Castlevania game was first mentioned at Tokyo Game Show last year.
While Lords of Shadow bears the Castlevania brand name it doesn’t feel anything like a traditional Castlevania title. Players will explore well lit environments and there isn’t a trace of Dracula.
